Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. has relocated its St. Louis service center to a 25-acre site on 2880 Elm Point Industrial Drive in St. Charles. The less-than-truckload company says the new 98-door terminal, which employs more than 140, will enable it to more efficiently handle shipments across the dock as well as offer exceptional service to customers in the St. Louis area.
“Our increased market share in the area has made it necessary to expand our current local and line-haul operations,” says Dave Bates, vice president of the Central States region for Old Dominion, based in Thomasville, N.C. “As we continue to grow, the new location will help us maintain our superior service to customers that includes a 98.8 percent on-time delivery rate and one of the lowest claims ratios in the industry.”
The service center will operate under the leadership of manager James Joliff and provide direct service to more than 15 cities surrounding St. Louis. Old Dominion currently operates 213 service centers in the continental United States.
